What to expect in a Healing Touch Session
A visit is about 1 ½ hours long depending on your goals and needs. We start with discussing your needs and forming an intention for your healing.
There is a non-denominational spiritual component to healing touch therapies. Sacred space is created for protection and asking for spiritual guidance. Aromatherapy can be used if you like.
I will then do an energy assessment to determine which technique would be most beneficial at that time. Throughout the treatment, you remain fully clothed. If you have any specific areas of concern, such as a surgical site or injury, you may be asked to show the area.
During the treatment, I will make sweeping movements over the body or using light touch to facilitate balancing of the energy points and clear congested energy. Typical time of doing the body work is about 30-45-minutes.
The session ends with a reflection of your experience and any additional support or referrals if needed. Many people experience increased thirst and hunger after a treatment. Water intake should be increased for the next couple of days to facilitate your body’s healing process.
It is encouraged that you pay attention to any changes your physical body, emotions, and mental state. Writing in a journal is encourage for self-analysis and personal growth.
It is important to keep in mind that I do not take problems away or "cure" illness. I assist you into recognizing patterns that have contributed to illness or stress then help find ways to change those patterns.
Healing Touch Energy Medicine
What is Healing Touch? Healing Touch is an endorsed and accredited energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing. The goal of Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system, creating an optimal environment to move toward self-healing. Benefits of Healing Touch The most common immediate benefits of Healing Touch are deep relaxation, a sense of balance, lightness and a feeling of well-being. Clients also often experience pain relief, lower stress, and mental clarity. Some individuals may also have spiritual experiences during the relaxed state as they explore their inner self more deeply. Individual experiences vary. NON INVASIVE
Healing Touch is done without the use of invasive procedures such as injections, inserting tubes, medication or surgery.
Research has shown that Healing Touch facilitates the relaxation response and enhances the healing process.
Medications can cause side effects and must be monitored. Healing Touch restores balance and harmony to our natural biofield without the use of pharmaceuticals.
Healing touch does not require the use of equipment or substances and can be done in any setting. An open heart, a set of hands and a willing spirit is all that is needed.
Subtle Energy Systems of the Body In Healing Touch, techniques are used that balance the major energy vortexes and the extending layers of the bio-field. The bio-field consists of different levels of vibrations or frequencies. It also consists of chakras/gyres/vortexes. The word used depends on cultural background. Each vortex and layer of our bio-field hold memories, emotions, beliefs, personality, and a blueprint for our optimal physical body. There is a constant flow and adjustment of our energy system that changes with our environment. When congestion or blocks occur in the bio-field or vortexes, disease can form within the physical body. Energy workers use their skills to identify and clear the disturbances to allow the body to heal itself. Self-care techniques are taught to help maintain a clear flow of energy throughout our energy system.
